The University of St. Thomas will be offering Engineering Education classes during the summer of 2013. These courses, which can be taken independently or as a requirement for the graduate certificate in engineering education, are designed to introduce P-12 educators to engineering content and its application in the P-12 classroom. Each course will be taught in an intensive one week format, followed by assignment work with online support.
(4 undergraduate/3 graduate credits) June 10-14, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm; Final project due at end of the semester, individualized faculty support available throughout project preparation
This is a hands-on course designed for educators. Topics include an overview of current P-12 engineering, exploration of pedagogy and content, links to academic standards, and assessment of classroom initiatives. Educators will learn of programs, methods and other educators who have introduced engineering into the P-12 classes across several disciplines. Engineering resources for teachers will be presented. Educators will create a unit or module focused on a hands-on engineering activity for P-12 students in their licensure area. Instructors: Dr. Debbie Monson and Dr. Deb Besser
(3 graduate credits) June 17-21, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm; Final project due at end of semester, individualized faculty support available throughout project preparation
The course examines core concepts of energy and power technologies including fuels, heat engines, and renewable energy sources. Students will be introduced to the economic, environmental, and ethical implications of energy generation as well as some of the technical aspects (1st and 2nd law of thermodynamics). Instructor: Dr. Tom Shepard
(3 graduate credits) June 24-28, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm; Final project due at end of semester, individualized faculty support available throughout project preparation
This course explores the fundamentals of both computer and electrical engineering disciplines and focuses primarily on the fundamentals principles that have enabled the "digital computing revolution" in communications, computing, entertainment, and monitoring systems. Educators will learn about the architecture of a microprocessor, interfacing it with external electronic circuitry/sensors and communicating with the processor through a computer programming language. Educators will complete a course project that will be due the first week of August. Instructors: Dr. Kundan Nepal and Mr. Andrew Tubesing Instructors: Dr. Kundan Nepal and Andrew Tubsing
UST Summer Academy Flyer Classes cost $1,200 each. Educators may enroll in one or all of the courses.
